Hi Rebex team,

In our software, we using Rebex email client to send all webmail (Gmail, Yahoo, AOL etc). Here we use Rebex SMTP.net.dll of version 1.
Currently Gmail or Yahoo has increased the security standard and restricts the low security apps to send any email using their server.
In order to allow email, user has to enable “low security app” from their email accounts.

I wanted to know is there anyway programmatically we can increase the security standard for our app using Rebex APIS/Authentication mode.
Any help would be great.

Thank you,
Satarupa

Hello, yes, it is possible. You can use OAuth authentication, which doesn’t require “Less secure apps” option to be enabled.

Please see How to authenticate to Gmail with Rebex Secure Mail using OAuth 2.0 blog post for sample code.
